The New York Post’s Larry Brooks says Brandon Prust can now forget about getting tickets on Celebrity Row at MSG at see the Knicks play.
That’s quite a thing Brooks has going. Sports columnist and the guy who decides who gets the good tickets for basketball games. Powerful stuff.
Of course it’s only what Brooks says. He has no say in Celebrity Row tickets. Or maybe he does. Was he the doorman at Studio 54 who decided who got in and who didn’t? Did he ever work at Immigration?
Note to other Habs players. If you’re going to be mean to the poor Rangers, you risk not getting primo seats for your favourite things in New York. No seats above the dugout at Yankee Stadium, no sold-out Broadway tickets, no front row at Carnegie Hall.
Maybe you should just let up. Even allow Chris Kreider to run Dustin Tokarski, which is only a matter of time coming anyway. Because the word is out. Being not nice to those Rangers means risking good tickets to stuff. Is it worth it?
Brooks putting the hammer down isn’t very nice. It surprises me. I thought New Yorkers were friendly types. Like Newfoundlanders. But surely Brandon knows a security guard at MSG who will let him slip in through a back door. Or maybe not. Maybe Brooks has taken care of that too.
Brandon, just phone Larry’s friend Torts. He’ll get you tickets.
It’s too bad it’s come to this. Prust makes a play that earns him two games, and Larry Brooks kiboshes Celebrity Row Knicks tickets. Talk about a double whammy.
It’s bad alright. But just remember this, Kreider and company. We still allow you to go to things in Montreal. Crescent Street is still wide open. For now anyway.
As for Larry Brooks, your 2 a.m. visits to Chez Paree have come to an end.
